This program is being offered in collaboration with Broome County Health Department, and through funding provided by a Rural Health Alliance grant and from CDCHP and Fidelis health insurance companies.  

“Tai Chi for Arthritis” is an eight week program that was designed by Dr. Paul Lam in conjunction with his Tai Chi associates and a team of medi­cal experts.  Based on the Sun style Tai Chi, “Tai Chi for Arthritis” is easy to learn, effective and safe.  It increases flexibility, muscle strength, increases heart/lung activity, aligns pos­ture, improves balance and integrates the mind and body.  The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention recommends the program for fall prevention in older adults.  The “Tai Chi for Arthritis” program is officially supported by the Arthritis Foundation of the United States and Australia.  Thousands of people with arthritis have gained relief from their condition.

 Statement for the Delaware County Office For The Aging
The Year 2020

Proposed by the Delaware County Office For The Aging Advisory Board
Drafted by the Vision Committee, January 12, 2012

  • We see an environment in Delaware County that encourages and enables older adults to make educated life choices.

  • We see an era of sensitivity toward our environment, diminishing natural resources and changing economy and its impact on future generations.

  • We see barrier-free access to comprehensive health care and supportive services.

  • We see the implementation of a transportation and communication network that supports the needs of older adults.

  • We see Delaware County with safe, affordable, and comfortable housing for older adults.

  • We see an environment that nurtures cross generational engagement through both human contact and technology.

  • We see a caring support system that promotes dignity and independence for older adults.

  • We see an environment that supports persons in care giving and other family obligations.

  • We see older adults playing an integral part in the life of the community where they are an accepted and respected part of society.

  • Since older adults impact the entire Delaware County community in all its complexity and since the entire community affects all older adults, we see this vision statement as one of a comprehensive vision for the future of Delaware County.
